Question about GE JBP24 QuickClean Electric Kitchen Range
Replacing the bake element . facing the back of the oven there is 2 red wires spliced together and 1 yellow . i wasnt paying attention whether they came from the left or right .does the red go on the right or left.facing the back from behind.
If you're talking about the wires attached to the BAKE element, normally RED is on the RIGHT and YELLOW is on the LEFT, but it really doesn't matter. Theoretically, this is a resistive heating coil and it will work with the wires connected in either direction. Normally, its fairly easy to determine how these wires reconnect, because the lengths are normally only sufficient enough to connect them one way.
The RED wire connects from the BAKE element to the terminal block, to one side of the BROIL element. The YELLOW wire is connected to one end of the BAKE element and runs to the electronic oven control (EOC) board.
I hope this clarifies this for you.

Be sure you have 230 volts across the red and black wires at the terminal block the power cord attaches to. I suspect you have only one line to the range.
It is simpler to check a portion of the range first. Go to the relay board for the bake and broil elements. Check for incoming voltage between the red and black wires. You should have 230 volts all the time.
Set the oven control to bake at 350 degrees and check between the yellow and black wires that go to the bake element. You should have 230 volts. If you have 0 volts, check between the yellow wire that goes to the bake element and the black wire that goes to the terminal block of the range. If you have 230 volts here, the DLB relay on the relay board is bad. This will prevent bake and broil from working.
We can go through the relay board for the cooktop. I think it is best to eliminate one problem at a time.
